Update: StarCraft: Remastered was already confirmed by Blizzard.
A job listing appeared on Blizzard’s website which wants programmers familiar with restoring games. The company clearly laid out its plan by starting that they were going to update StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II for modern gaming. The listing reads:
“Compelling stories. Intense multiplayer. Endless replayability. Qualities that made StarCraft, Warcraft III, and Diablo II the titans of their day. Evolving operating systems, hardware, and online services have made them more difficult to be experienced by their loyal followers or reaching a new generation. We’re restoring them to glory, and we need your engineering talents, your passion, and your ability to get tough jobs done. If you like wearing many hats, know small teams are the most effective, and look forward to challenges that will create millions of new adventures for our players, we would love to hear from you.”
While we loved StarCraft and Warcraft III, Diablo II still holds a special place in our hearts. It’s an absolutely fantastic experience even to this day and we can’t wait to see an upgraded version. Diablo II not only tells an absolutely stellar story—one which is miles ahead of Diablo III—it also features incredible variety when it comes to missions and environments. Diablo II is quite possibly our favorite game of all time and hopefully Blizzard will reveal their plans soon. Until then, keep waiting!
